Applying to the Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship


Any general psychiatry resident training in a U.S. ACGME-accredited program, expecting to graduate in good standing and to become ABPN board eligible in general psychiatry, may apply to the Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship program at Indiana University School of Medicine. The program also welcomes psychiatrists who are several years out from residency training (and already boarded in General Psychiatry) who recognize the need for the additional training and certification in Addiction Psychiatry for their careers and their patients.

General Psychiatry Residents (and/or those who have done any other type of psychiatry fellowship training) can begin the inquiry and application process at any point in their PGY-2 year or later.


There are now two ways to apply for the Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship. See "Application Process" below for details.

Apply through ERAS

Application Process

The application process for the Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship happens outside “the Match” and occurs year-round. There are two ways to apply. Andy Chambers, MD, Fellowship Director, will accept CVs and conduct phone interviews at anytime with candidates who choose to follow either the ERAS or IU Application paths.


  • The cost to apply is $300. Applications are accepted through ERAS from July 1 through December 31. Programs will begin to extend offers in mid-September. Any candidate applying via ERAS who signs with the Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship will be reimbursed for the $300 application fee.
  • Benefit of ERAS: Candidates can designate all programs where applications are sent.
